‘The Woman in Me’, a film by acclaimed Rwandan Film Maker, Eric Kabera, will be screened for the second time this Sunday September 24, 2023.
The film brings together converging and controversial attitudes and thoughts on how women in #Africa today are pushing boundaries toward empowerment.
Kabera told Taarifa that there is a growing number of people demanding for more screenings because the topic has attracted heated debate, inquiry and various perspectives.
“There is also a trend of brewing tensions in families….gender issues…and this film helps in understanding culture, political and biological perspectives. This film helps to appreciate and breakdown those complexities,” Kabera said.
The film, produced by Kabera’s Kwetu Film Institute and Rwanda Cinema Center, premiered on March 25, at Century Cinema.
The film which was dedicated to Women’s Month, paying tribute to Rwandan women, and women worldwide, who have been oppressed economically, politically, and socially for centuries, attracted diverse and sharp debates.
Kabera says the debate has since ignited a public demand for a re-screening. “Even the diplomatic community is demanding for a special screening, and we will soon announce when and where.”
On Sunday, the screening will be in Kagugu, an open area with more space. The gathering will engage in discussions around the film and later there will be cocktails and ambiance, the kind of Hillywood style.
